Ces dernières années, le jeu vidéo a fait quelques incursions dans les musées. Il était temps que le travail des artisans du milieu viennent prendre un peu de place sur les murs réservés aux monochromes et autres merveilles de l’esprit humain. KIDS, c’est un peu l’inverse : l’œuvre abstraite s’est échappée d’un musée pour arriver sur nos moniteurs crasseux. Contrairement à un chef-d’œuvre au Ripolin, on peut se la procurer pour trois sous.

KIDS est un court-métrage interactif, où l’on oriente de petits personnages à la souris. On clique et les bonhommes réagissent, ça aurait pu être désuet et drôle. Mais la sensation de malaise surgit bien, fugace, devant ces petits êtres agglutinés. L’ambiance sonore contribue fortement à faire naître l’étincelle de l’angoisse. Dans ce monde en noir et blanc, on semble ordonner la vie et la mort. Suis-je un sauveur ? Suis-je Dieu ? À moins que ce troupeau ne court seul à sa perte, incapable de s’organiser. La vraie angoisse serait d’être un des leurs. Ha zut, ils m’ont eu : j'interprète.

Les amateurs d’animation et les fumeurs de shit gras trouveront dans KIDS matière à gamberger sur l'anthropocène, la création, le panurgisme, la vie, la mort...
Les agoraphobes masochistes sont également bienvenus.

Life is complicated. Sometimes it's better to jump into that hole that your friend did... or is it? Kids makes you question a lot of things and I think that level of introspection is missing in a lot of our media today.

mmmmm yes, kids

wow, that was pretty mind-blowing. btw, if you liked it you should defenetly try plug&play (https://rawg.io/games/plug-play), it was great too

This is really great! I think I get the point, it's really about subverting expectations and peer pressure, and how sometimes you can go against the grain and other times life just forces you down certain paths. 

My youtube channel is all about how Games ARE Art, and games like this just make the point so easy to make! Thank you for sharing your art!
